Two inspectors have joined the Ipswich Local Policing Command in a bid to reduce crime in the borough.


Insp Chris Hinitt joins Ipswich Central and Gary Miller joins Ipswich South East as the inspectors for both the Safer Neighbourhood and Neighbourhood Response teams.

Insp Hinitt said: “I am looking forward to working on the Ipswich Central team, having enjoyed a period early in my career covering the town centre and dealing with issues affecting the different communities.

“I look forward to making a positive difference to local residents.”

His previous role was with the Western Area Priority Crime Team based in Bury St Edmunds, where he was a detective sergeant.

Joining Suffolk police in 1996, Insp Hinitt worked in Ipswich as a uniformed Pc on Stoke ward, the Chantry estate and the town centre, before joining CID.

Insp Miller has been with Suffolk Police for eight years and started his career in Newmarket.

“This is my first experience of Ipswich and I am looking forward to building on the good work that the teams are already doing.

“Throughout my service my emphasis has always been on a pro-active style of policing and proving a high quality service to victims of crime”, he said.

He has moved from Haverhill where he was a sergeant and he said his aim was to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

  • Victor Meldrew...The one and only..?? Why on earth employ two new Inspectors each on £46K + per year....when the taxpayer is screaming out for Police officers on the beat.!!! Yes I can remember when a night shift put out 9 foot beats....9 panda area doubled crewed car...3 uniform sgts and an Inspector. Plus a CID late shift although they were mostly spending their time getting info from their snouts in the pubs!!! Happy days...never to come again.

  • Waspie- some of us can remember when there was an inspector on every shift and they made arrests themselves. Shock horror these days?

  • If there was a F O I request that asked how many arrests have been made by a Inspector, uniform or CI, in the last 5 years I would lay odds that the number would be less than 5 probably less. How many uniform PC'S could you have for two Inspector rank pen pushers??

  • It would be better to spend the money on more visible front line officers on the streets.

Foundation Street is one of the oldest streets in Ipswich, connecting the port with the town centre. Buildings which had stood for centuries were demolished in the early 1960s in what was then seen as “improvements”.
